    I think PSYA4 is decent - 61 for an A* which I am DESPERATE for, or at least an A (that's the only Psychology result I need, as I took PSYA3 last year - this year is a retake for PSYA4). But I mean, the annoying thing about AQA Psychology is you think you've done well but their making is sooo harsh
    So true 😥 I'll feel really disappointed if I don't get the A* because my teachers had so much (too much) confidence in me. I feel like I've let people down haha

    I had that last year! I was always getting really high marks in practise essays and mock exams, etc. but low and behold, the one time it mattered, I ended up with a B overall. Hopefully will have done much better this year! Don't worry too much about other people's expectations though, you won't let anyone down - worry about you, how hard you worked and how proud you can feel regardless!

    Ohhh for computer science then Swansea is an amazing backup choice - they hit WELL above their weight for employment post degree, have work placement options available and a foundation year if things go horribly wrong, their students rate them really highly, they're pretty good at offering accommodation to clearing intakes, the campus is lovely with some awesome new developments, lovely old buildings and the closest beach to any university campus in the UK (have a look http://www.swansea.ac.uk/virtual-tour-stand-alone/ ).
    They accepted me when I put them as one of my 5 choices but sadly when I visited the environment and campus didn't give me that feeling I needed for 3/4 years sadly.

    I'm sure you've done really well 😊 The grade boundaries aren't great, but I hope we've done enough! I'm going to avoid my psych teacher tomorrow though 😂

    Anyone else *****ing aqa Chemistry unit 4? 76/100 for an A FML!!

    also the chem6 empa has 3 mark grade boundaries :'(
    Yeah I am very surprised. I personally found it okay, but the uproar about it made me think the grade boundaries would be rock bottom. But examiners are weird.

    Did anyone do AQA AS chemistry retakes? The grade boundaries are ridiculously low considering that everyone who did the exam was an A2 student

    They have used the same boundaries as for the new spec that's why which imo is so wrong...

    pooo

    What about the other side of the country: http://www.essex.ac.uk/courses/detai...069&subgroup=1
    Or a slightly different approach to comp sci: http://www.southampton.ac.uk/webscie...e.page#modules
    Or somewhere very cool http://www.sussex.ac.uk/study/underg...016/4592/32847

    Assuming you're not into big cities (based on firming exeter) then http://www.lboro.ac.uk/study/undergr...puter-science/ or http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/study/und...bsc-hons-g400/ or http://www.reading.ac.uk/ready-to-st...r-science.aspx or https://www.royalholloway.ac.uk/comp...erscience.aspx or https://www.cs.york.ac.uk/undergradu...ourses/bsc-cs/ would all be worth a try
